Do better ingredients equal better candy? They do at A Real Treat. I love Main Street and all of the new stores that pop up. A Real Treat is about six months old and features pure candy. Many of the candies here are
for the allergy sensitive, vegan, gluten-free, kosher, and lover of natural sweets. Much of the candy is free of corn syrup, dye, and produced in dedicated facilities free of nuts and allergens. Candies get their colorful look from fruit and vegetable
extracts as well as some spices. The store is not, however a 100% allergen-free environment. All allergen-free products are labeled, so it's easy to find something for everyone. The old fashioned caramels ($41.99 for 50) are the most amazing carmels
I've tasted. They are buttery, creamy, sweet and salty. My favorite is the Butterscotch Sea Salt. Caramel Chocolate Swirls ($8.99/8 oz.) are a yummy swirl of chocolate added to chewy caramels that are gluten free, soy free, kosher, and non-GMO. They are
also mouth-wateringly delicious. A Real Treat Candy Boutique 2724 Main Street, Santa Monica (424) 272-5416 Hours: Sun-Thurs: 11:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m. Fri-Sat: 11:30 a.m.- 7:00 p.m.
